Summer series, twice a month

This summer Sunset Art Studios will be open for a series of collaborative studio days. Twice a month in June, July, and August, the studio doors will be open to be public. During this time studio artists and the Sunset Artist in Residence will be engaged in their own art-making processes (i.e. collage, painting, drawing, photography, digital technologies, etc.) and welcome artists and non-artists alike to join them in their work.

We're looking for artists to partner with!
